Earth Day on Saturday 22 April is the annual celebration of the achievements of the environmental movement, and the perfect prompt to start getting the latest news on climate matters sent straight to your inbox.

The new Somerset Council cross-county monthly newsletter will be launched near the end of April.

You can already sign-up to receive it on the Somerset Council website.

Sent on the last Friday of every month, it will be full of news, project updates, and inspirational ideas about the work going on in the county in response to the Climate Emergency, along with information and tips to help us all live better, waste less and reduce our environmental impact. If we all do our bit and love where we live, we can keep Somerset clean, green and attractive.

Making Somerset a greener, more sustainable place is one of the Council’s top priorities, working with the Somerset Climate Network and other organisations, networks and individuals keen to make a difference.

The theme of this year’s Earth Day is ‘Invest in our planet’ and you can find more information and ideas for getting involved on the Earth Day website.

Councillor Sarah Dyke, Lead Member for Environment and Climate Change, said:

We’re committed to be zero carbon by 2030 and everyone needs to play their part.

Signing up for the newsletter is a great way to keep up to date with what’s going on and find out about different ways we can do things differently to help tackle climate change and preserve our beautiful county.
